Happy birthday to pixelfish!
Oh, I was overly optimistic yesterday.
Snot goblins are spreading. They are now in my head as well as my chest. So I am a snuffly coughy mess. With shortness of breath. Fun!
I'm with ktpinto here. Great pic!
Plants die and are cat toys. Chocolate, I should have only in moderation; I really need to eat healthier. (I wouldn't say no to something healthy + yummy.)
I like words. I like stuff-you-made.
Again, what I like best is stuff-you-made; it is most special to me, most treasured. If you don't make stuff and/or want to buy me stuff, my Amazon and not-Amazon wishlists are on my sidebar. Nonmaterial wishlist: someone to give a little project-based help around the house.
Judas meets... well, I won't give anything away.
Half Sick of Shadows is dulcinbradbury's Wind Tunnel Dreams. This round, she's giving half the proceeds to s00j.
Publishers Weekly Needs Reviewers!
Quoth rosefox: "I'm surprised to find that I'm a little short on reviewers, especially for mass market romance (of all kinds, from historical to paranormal) and thrillers. I also seem to have misplaced a bunch of emails from people who wrote to me the last time I put an ad out, so if you applied before and haven't heard from me, please feel free to apply again.
At this point I am only looking for people who have already done a lot of nonfiction writing, preferably book or movie reviewing, and are familiar and comfortable with the editorial process, small wordcounts (I ask for 180-200 words and edit them down to about 145), and tight deadlines. The pay is $25 per review and I generally send each reviewer about one book every two weeks, though if I bring on many more reviewers that may stretch to one book every three or four weeks.
If you know anyone who would be interested in reviewing SF/F/H or mass market titles for PW, please ask them to email email@example.com with a summary of their professional nonfiction writing experience."
